Vonn’s leading time (1:44.43) was nearly four seconds faster than yesterday’s fastest. Switzerland’s own Fraenzi Aufdenblatten was 0.57 seconds behind Vonn with the second-fastest time followed by Italian Elena Fanchini, 1.12 seconds back.
Vonn, who stands at the top of the overall World Cup rankings, appeared to have grown a lot more comfortable with the course in just 24 hours. The winner of the first two downhill races of the season, Vonn finished yesterday’s run in 28th position, 6.36 seconds slower than she did today.
Swiss Lara Gut gave chase with the forth-fastest time, 1.22 seconds off the leading pace.
